A Lone Robin

The rain missed us and we had an idyllic weekend of clear skies and sunshine so we took the opportunity to load a few friends into the rubber duck and head for Nimos with a picnic hamper. Skipping across the flat sea in an inflatable boat is a bracing experience at this time of the year but worth it when the destination enjoys the sun until late in the afternoon. We had an extra guest at the buffet-a lone robin who amused us greatly with his antics and bold forays at self-service-he found the feta a little on the salty side but kept returning to the bread board long after the remains of the loaf had been packed away.

Meanwhile, back in the Pedi valley, we are in an ovine maternity ward and the lambs are anything but silent. These two families posed for the camera this morning. The black ram has certainly been busy!

That long forecast rain is expected to hit us tomorrow-the remnants of the same weather system that has been dumping snow on the Italian Alps.

Have a good week.

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
